dramatized version of the book
Once I got over to the uneven recording quality of the voices, I enjoyed listening to this dramatized version of the book. I think the voices were well done and they made the book come to life for me. Well done!

Multi-reader version of classic story
I was rather disappointed with this reading of Stevenson's classic story. Multiple readers make for a strange listening experience. Some are excellent, others not so good. A better version by a single reader (even if he is from the south of England) is at http://www.archive.org/details/treasure_island_ap_librivox
the problem is how the flash player deals with audio file encoding at certain bit rates.
translation: the downloads are fine; the problem is playing in that player.
all newer LibriVox books should not have this problem,,, and i'm surprised this one does.

Although I didn't download this, when I was streaming it there were several chapters that sound like the chipmunks. These are chs 5-6,9-10, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25-26, 31, and 32. I tried several times and the problem continued but I'm not sure where to address the issue on this site.

This is a collaborative reading of Treasure Island from Librivox.org.
This is a great book, and a great reading. Well worth listening to!
